I thought it’d be nice to kick off the 4th of July with a 7 Year Old Rhema Marvanne’s beautiful rendition of the National Anthem – The Star Spangled Banner.   The ending is the best part.

I will be spending the entire Fourth of July weekend at rodeos, parades, church, and doing fireworks with my family.   What will you be doing?

Have a Happy Fourth of July! God Bless America, the land that I love.

If you are new to my site, every Friday I usually feature a funny couponing video, but this week I decided to do something more patriotic.  Here’s my favorite funny couponing video of weeks past – Half-awful, Half-genius, Totally Cuckoo Music Video About Coupons!

Next week, July 4 – 10, select Kmart stores nationwide will be running a limited Super Doubles promotion where they will double the face value of some coupons! Select stores nationwide are participating and this list will tell you if yours is.

— You must present a Shop Your Way Rewards number at time of purchase. The cashier needs to enter your Shop Your Way Rewards number of swipe your card at the start of your transaction. Shop Your Rewards is a free loyalty program for Kmart and Sears. You can sign up for a membership number on on their website.

— Health and beauty coupons up to $2 in value are eligible to be doubled (i.e. a $2 off coupon becomes $4 off). This clearly excludes all other coupons including grocery, pet supply, household products, etc. Only coupons with a dollar amount face value will be doubled (i.e. Buy One, Get One Free coupons are not doubled)

— They will give you twice the face value of the first 5 manufacturer’s coupons you use each day. The offer is limited to 5 coupons per customer per day.

—     Kmart Store Coupons or Kmart Pharmacy Store Coupons are not eligible.

In my previous experiences with this promotion Kmart’s prices are so much higher than other stores that only a select few items become really stellar deals after the doubled coupon value.   As always, check the Cuckoo Deals Map next week for a list of great items to pair with this sale! Thanks, Pocket your dollars

Well she just seems so innocent doesn’t she?  9 days ago She was screaming and I wanted to work on my site.  After several unsuccessful attempts at getting her to play with her older sister, I decided to hand her my cell phone just for  a minute so I could finish my post and then go play with her.

Well she ran from the room quick as can be, and 9 days later my cell phone has still never returned.  We’ve even looked in the vents!

We don’t have a house phone.  So for nine days I have been phone-less.   I emailed friends and family to tell people to email me because I didn’t have a phone and didn’t want to buy a new one. You would have thought I said I was going top-less; people were really shocked that someone could go without a phone.   I decided I am too frugal to buy a new one, I know people lived for centuries without phones, well I could do it too.

I decided to be The Ultimate Frugalista – no cell phone or home/land phone!

I have had a cell phone since they first got big 11 years ago.  I have been texting details about my day to my husband for years.  I had no idea what a big role my phone played in my life.  With my phone gone, I couldn’t just text my husband and ask him what he wanted for dinner.  I couldn’t call the repair man when our door broke (it’s under warranty) and I couldn’t get a hold of the BYU Intern office since they don’t answer emails.  I have wanted to call them for 9 days but haven’t been able to.   I couldn’t call my friends and say “let’s go to the park”, which we often randomly do with our kids.  I emailed them, but my friends are stone-age (no offense, you know who you are 🙂  and only check their email once per day, often long after I wanted to randomly go to the park.

Well you get the picture.   Life without a phone was not as easy as I thought it would be.

So today I decided it is not going to just  “show up” as I was hoping it would, and decided to buy a new phone on eBay.  I did a ton of research and picked my phone.  I waited impatiently for hours to make sure I won it. I was the high bidder with 10 seconds left.  Then I refreshed the page and I’d been outbid!   What a waste of time!

I am sitting here waiting for another bid to end at 4:30. This time I did a “max bid” so it will automatically up my bid to if people keep out-bidding me.  Wish me luck!

Morale of The Story: Don’t hand your phone to your toddlers, even for a minute.
